from Emily, 4-332-17:
And I thought; this is their day,
how it breaks for them!

24 hour challenge #4, “How It Breaks for Them,” for Emily: score [pdf], performance [mp3], bassoon [mp3]
The worst part of this project is having to hear my voice. I’m never warmed up, and I sound awful. That’s OK, I think the vocal lines are fine and would only sound better with a real voice singing them.
Anyway, this one is short and sweet, very sweet. No apologies for the unsophisticated approach to the very real sentiment of the poem.
So, four pieces down, and four more to go as of yesterday afternoon. I’m sure there will be more, which is good. I am actually enjoying this (except for the singing part.)
